Through diversity, science thrives.

Teams built on equity, diversity and respect enable stronger innovation, greater creativity and happier people. These factors are critical to solving society's serious problems. At AIBN we strive to embed these principles at all levels to benefit our staff and students. It is integral to our culture, our values and the way we do business.

Gender Equity and Diversity Commission

We recognise that the AIBN community comes from a variety of diverse backgrounds and we support our researchers in their endeavours.

We hold diversity to include women, people with disability, people who are from LGBTQIA+ communities, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people from other marginalised groups.

Through creating an environment where the principles of equity, diversity and respect are embedded, we can enable ideas to flourish, people from all backgrounds to feel valued and to nurture the next generation of scientists. To help achieve this and address any imbalance in diversity across the Institute, AIBN has established the Gender, Equity and Diversity Commission, to develop and implement initiatives around equity, diversity, respect and inclusion.


There are a number of funding opportunities which are targeted at female researchers.
